For over 100 years the NSCDA-CA has supported our military and their families. We are deeply grateful to our veterans and to the young men and women currently serving in our armed forces. There are many opportunities for outreach to our fellow Americans in uniform both deployed and here at home.  The NSCDA-CA currently participates in

  • Knitting for our Troops. Members are knitting scarves and helmet liners needed by our troops deployed in colder climates. (Thank you Northern California!)
  • Making school kits for students to write holiday cards to Veterans  (proposed)
  • Collecting food and items and pack with the Blue Star Moms of Marin County (Thank you Northern California)
  • Hosting Dinners for Active Military Families with the USO (Thank you San Diego Committee!)
  • Purchasing phone cards for Active Military deployed overseas (Thank you Monterey Peninsula Committee!)

The NSCDA website offers additional ways all of us can help our veterans and military service men and women and their families.  Please see: Service to the Military

Citizenship Programs

The NSCDA-CA’s San Diego Committee has for many years participated in the Immigration and Naturalization Ceremonies. They provide a speaker, welcome the new citizens to the United States and share some information about San Diego.
